J. Mills Goodloe (“The Age Of Adeline,” “The Mountains Between Us”) is set to re-write the script for the film adaptation of Andrea Portes’ 2014 young adult novel “Anatomy Of A Misfit” at Paramount Pictures.
The story follows the third-most-popular girl in school who is secretly dating a troubled loner when the most popular guy is suddenly interested in her. She struggles to choose between them until she is faced with a tragedy that changes her entire perception of high school and the social order.
Allison Shearmur is producing the property which the studio acquired back in 2014. Goodloe takes over from Portes and Joel Silverman who penned previous drafts.
